Valentine’s Day Luncheon
This coming Sunday, February 17th, there will be a catered Valentine’s Day luncheon in Crichton Fellowship Hall, immediately after our 10:30 worship service. Lunch will be lasagna, salad, and garlic bread, and there will be live entertainment. Tickets are $10 per person, or $20 per family, and can be purchased from Connie Mosley or the church office or the day of the luncheon.

Making Plans for 2019
There will be a church-wide planning day on Saturday, March 2nd from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM. All church leaders and interested parties are invited to attend. We will be making plans for the remainder of the year, including for our new, just approved, early-morning Sunday worship service. It should be an informative and inspirational day of discovery for all who attend.

UMM Flapjack Fundraiser, March 9th
You are invited by the United Methodist Men to come to a pancake breakfast on Saturday, March 9th. This “Flapjack Fundraiser” is open to all church members, and their friends, family, co-workers and neighbors. The fundraiser will be held from 8 AM until 10 AM at the Applebee’s Restaurant at 829 Providence Road in Brandon. Tickets are available from all United Methodist Men, and $5 of each $7 ticket will go directly to help church programs. It is a great time of food and fellowship that benefits the church. Buy your tickets today!

RESTORE News and Notes
Many are not aware that the RESTORE Thrift Store is open to the public. Starting in February, the Thrift Store will be open not only on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, but also on the first Saturday of the month. Profits from our Thrift Store go directly back into supporting food pantry operations.

The Thrift Store, in conjunction with the United Methodist Men, had a very successful recent yard sale. RESTORE also received a very generous donation of cash and food from the Christian fellowship at Rice Creek mobile home park. We want to express our thanks to Rice Creek, as well as to the many RUMC members and guests who support our Christmas angel toy and clothing drive at the end of 2018.

RESTORE is now looking for additional volunteers to help serve hot lunches to our clients on Tuesday mornings. If you would be interested in helping feed our neighbors, contact Dawn Parks or Jan Crichton.

Bible Verse for the Week
God Prepares a Feast

But here on this mountain, GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies
  will throw a feast for all the people of the world,
A feast of the finest foods, a feast with vintage wines,
  a feast of seven courses, a lavish feast with gourmet   desserts.
And here on this mountain, GOD will banish
  the pall of doom hanging over all peoples,
The shadow of doom darkening all nations.
  Yes, he’ll banish death forever.
And GOD will wipe the tears from every face.
  He’ll remove every sign of disgrace from his people,    wherever they are.
 Yes! GOD says so!

Also at that time, people will say,
   “Look at what’s happened! This is our God!
We waited for him and he showed up and saved us!
   This GOD, the one we waited for!
Let’s celebrate, sing the joys of his salvation.
   GOD’s hand rests on this mountain!”

Isaiah 25:6-10 (The Message)
